Genre Post: Literary FictionToday's genre is literary fiction. Much like "genre fiction" and "classic fiction," literary fiction can be a very broad topic. Not necessarily a bad thing.
I (Emily) am very new to literary fiction. I am currently working towards an English degree, and am just getting my feet wet in the ocean that is literary fiction. I am enjoying the complexity and beautiful storytelling that literary fiction provides, and I can't wait to see what you all have to write about this topic.
As I mentioned, I'm new to literary fiction and don't get into a whole lot of discussion about it, mostly because I'm embarrassed by how much I haven't read. Here are some prompts if you're looking for what to write about:
What books have you read this year that would fit into this category?
Is there anything coming up that you're particularly excited about?
What authors/novels would you recommend to someone new to the genre?
Are there any misconceptions or things that you'd like to clear up for people unfamiliar with literary fiction?
What got you started into this kind of book?
Name a novel that hasn't received a lot of buzz that definitely deserves it.
